Synopsis

A man wanders alone moving from town to town in North West India. Once a brave warrior now a Boatmaker for Yama, Lord of Death. He is Dharayan and ferrying souls is the price he pays for being granted immortality as a warrior. But Dharayan desires nothing more than to die and be with his son murdered by his enemies.

When Dharayan arrives at a new town he is met with suspicion and hostility except for a young girl called Sonu who greets with him with kindness and friendship. Sonu's charm begins to win over the emotionally closed off Boatmaker who forges a close bond with the child and her widow mother.

After making more boats than he can recall, Dharayan learns he can finally be with his son if he collects one last soul. He begins his last task only to discover it is for Sonu's mother. The young child begs him not to take her mother away forcing Dharayan to choose between saving Sonu's mother or joining his son.
